Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter:

Monday, May 12

10:12 a.m. A man driving on High School Road did not secure the hatchback of his car. Inside was half a case of beer. It flew out and the bottles shattered in the roadway at High School Road and Highway 305.

Two citizens came up to police with brooms, dust pans and garbage pails to help with the clean-up.

12:54 a.m. Suquamish police found an abandoned 1974 canoe and dropped it off at the Bainbridge city dock.

The city harbormaster took the boat into custody and is currently holding it at the Vincent Road storage facility.

Wednesday, May 14

1:26 p.m. Police received a report that a man would not get out of the road at an apartment parking lot. The man informed officers he was a resident at the apartment and stood about two feet into the parking lot drive while he watered plants.

He said he did not initially move when a car honked behind him because there was plenty of width for the vehicle to drive around. The car eventually went around him.

The man and the reporting person also told officers they have had an ongoing dispute and they each believe the other is intentionally harassing the other.

Thursday, May 15

1:49 p.m. The door of a storage shed at the Bainbridge Public Library was kicked in overnight.

The shed is located outside the library and contains gardening tools. Police found an indistinct footprint on the door where it had been kicked in. The door latch was broken and the wood splintered.

Library employees estimate $300 in damages. Nothing was immediately found missing.
